    T1 Touareg LED reverse bulbs

    Hi guys, quick question here for some fellow members at clubtouareg. A couple people are having trouble finding error free bulbs that work with that model. I know on the T3 you can turn off rear bulb diagnostics in the adaption channels for a similar mod. Does anyone know if this is possible with the T1? Or is this one of those times where these guys are gonna have to install resistors to get what they want? Thanks

    I doubt that's possible. The T1's electronics were designed in the early 2000s before white LEDs were a thing, and before there was much flexibility to lighting configuration.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    To the OP:

    You may have already tried this (or know of this on-line vendor), but just in case deAutoLED (http://deautokey.com) has a lot of VW specific LED bulbs.
    I have successfully used error-free LED bulbs from them on a variety of VAG vehicles - not on a Touareg though.

    They might have something your group could use, and they stand behind their product.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks vinnie, deautokey has a profile who is pretty active there. I guess they were bought from there and some other sources but this fella was having issues still, and deautokey was trying to help but stated those bulbs were tough to figure out. Thanks for the replyís!
